Dinner 2018

Recommended Posts

Back to Hong Kong from 2.5 weeks in Germany and Spain. Tired after 2 long flights the unanimous vote of our family as to which comfort food we should have for our first dinner: Japanese (namely sushi, gyoza and miso soup). And the best thing everything was ready in less than 15 min - including the walk to pick up the sushi ... Good to be back home!

Grilled (to me) / Broiled (to a lot of you I think) chicken boob, devoid of the good bits. Made up for with cheese, jalapeño, sriracha and served on Courgette ribbons with Broccoli. 

 

I am beyond bored of weighing every. minuscule. thing. 

 

nice photo!

Some geese have finally moved in so Ronnie got a few and saved the hearts, livers and gizzards too.  On the left of the bowl are some chicken gizzards on the right are the goose innards.  I fried them all then threw them in the Instant Pot for an hour.  Very tender.

Does it count as cooking if I did it in my slow cooker? 

 

  Swedish meatballs with egg noodles. Stupidly simple and cheap but surpringly good and satisfying on a cold night.

Fire And Curry

 Fire And Curry, sounds like Michael Wolff's explosive new  book.

 No, I am talking about Cold Weather Food.

 Made SV chicken thighs with Thai green curry, prairie fire pepper, coconut milk, lime juice.

 Hot, hot, hot! Good, good, good!

Rigatoni with sausage and broccoli.

 

It's a rare weekday dinner cooked by me - moreso since I started around 11 pm Pacific.

 

The sauce was pretty minimalist: lard, sweet Italian sausage, broccoli, salt, black pepper, white wine, pasta cooking water. Dusted with pecorino cheese and more pepper.

 

Buona notte!

Baguette, rib lamb chops, 30 second green beans -- beans that were on their way over the hill.  Sat down to eat about 3:30 am EST.  Dessert a bottle of Pusser's 15 year.  Also baked a boule but the boule is a present for a friend.

Found these frozen Rock Cornish Game Hens that all claim to be 16 oz. Close inspection quickly shows that not to be the case, as there are tiny ones and whoppers. Still, I like the idea and they all ring up at $2.59, which is pretty good. I did these Korean BBQ style in the oven. Next time I will do them in a closed baking dish for more moist tenderness, but these were pretty good. I served them with steamed broccoli and mild garlic couscous.

I love it when stores flat-price meats and poultry that way. I've seen weight variance of up to 40%, and I'm not at all embarrassed to stand there at the display gondola and sift through EVERY FREAKIN' PACKAGE to find the one or two largest. 

 

Scots ancestry, doncha know. :P

We did the same Game hens, different brand!!

 

I ended up using my clay cooker..  was moist / I also made a stuffing to go inside  ( top )--I cut the back out and serve it on that..killer

 

I made spicy green beans  ( sauce )-  sauté -Garlic, add  Sambel and a touch of rice wine, Cornish game stock

I sauced the birds with that near the end.

Cauliflower mash

do you SV in the sauce?

Or just sauce it on the plate?

 

I did not SV with the sauce. The vegetables were cooked in the sauce.

The Cornish hens spark my interest. I guess I'll cook dinner again someday; haven't done so since Christmas, as I've mostly been sick. But I do love a Cornish hen. One of the premier barbecue places in Memphis does a smoked/bbq'd CGH, and it's to die for.

 

In fact....maybe I need to make a Memphis run.

One small perk of adulting. Parsnip, date and hazelnut quick bread with ricotta. Washed down with a Hole-in-One cocktail.

John has been eating on the arroz con pollo.  I had gone shopping this morning and bought  a loaf of Thomas' cranberry swirl bread.  Toasted that up then thinly sliced turkey, cranberry sauce and some miracle whip and a cup of hot tea.

First time I have ever heard of parsnip in a quick bread.
